Another back to back, another tough test-thanks NHL!

It will be weird to see Kunitz on the other bench. He skated with the Pens a few weeks back when the hurricane came through.

I'm interested to see if the Pens do put Murray in goal tonight.
Penguins projected lineup

Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Bryan Rust

Carl Hagelin -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Conor Sheary -- Greg McKegg -- Patric Hornqvist

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Carter Rowney -- Ryan Reaves

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Chad Ruhwedel

Matt Hunwick -- Justin Schultz

Matt Murray

Antti Niemi

Scratched: Josh Archibald , Scott Wilson, Chris Summers

Injured: Ian Cole (jaw)

I think it's Niemi tonight, no sense of killing MM so early in the season. Even if Niemi stinks it up, they have to see what he brings to the table

Agreeed Donnie. We need to know what we are working with.

Seeing how Tampa's defense has played thus far, I'd bet on a high scoring affair tonight.

Agreed but I'm going by the lines given. Need to see if Niemi is reliable.

Without looking it up, has any other team played two back to backs so far? Sheesh.

Rangers play their 2nd back to back this weekend, but otherwise no.

1/10th of a second, fuck.

Niemi was better to say the least.

Need a better effort from the D corps going into the second.

Sullivan is still shaking out the lines. Defense is a work in progress-missing Cole.

We can live with this Niemi but the rest of the team is still in flight.

Sheary with the snap shot_top shelf.

Niemi makes the clutch save seconds earlier!

This team is so motherfucking soft right now coming into our own end.

Someone needs to fucking backcheck Jesus H. Christ that is too goddamn easy.

OK Niemi has made some good saves.

Team defense is ATROCIOUS.

Pens didn’t deserve to win that game but they made it close. Brutal schedule to start the season.

Niemi looks very iffy to me. Team defense was shit. Reaves needs to take good penalties, not dogshit ones like that.

Head home and beat the piss out of the panthers.

Could easily have been 10. He made some good saves, but his form just looks weird to me.

I was thinking the exact same thing Orangesteel. He looks so weird in goal. Like he is stiff and scared. Our defense has been shit though with him in net. It's like they want to see him fail or something.

My old refrain...I don't know shit about hockey.....but, Neimi seems to be the opposite of Murray. I was at the Arena last Saturday for a Murray shutout that was unspectacular. Dude most always seems to be positionally correct. Neimi...this fuckin' guy seems like he's on the ice in sneakers, not skates. Last night was the first time I saw him play.

Bob Errey said pregame this matchup, under the circumstances, had 5-4 game written all over it, Hilariously accurate.
